With DC’s Legends of Tomorrow getting set for its fifth season, it looks as if two familiar faces will not be long for the world of the Arrowverse.
Courtesy of Deadline, both Brandon Routh and his wife Courtney Ford are departing Legends. Routh plays Ray Palmer/The Atom in the series – a role he debuted in during Arrow’s third season – and Ford has played Nora Darhk since the third season of Legends.
At this stage, it’s not known just when during Season 5 of Legends of Tomorrow the pair will leave the show, and there is even speculation that the pair may not make it out from this December’s hugely anticipated Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event. In that crossover, of course, Routh has also been confirmed to be playing an alternative version of Superman.
While the rest of the Arrowverse shows return to screens in just a matter of weeks, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere its fifth season early next year.
